Order your trees, berries and asparagus by April 10
MIDDLEBURY — For anyone interested in adding some trees or shrubs to their landscapes, the Otter Creek Natural Resources Conservation District is sponsoring its Annual Tree/Seedling Program for area residents and cooperators. This program was developed for the convenience of area residents and proceeds help support on-going conservation projects.
A partial list of trees and seedlings the district is offering are White Pine, Balsam Fir, Fraser Fir, White Cedar, White Spruce, American Chestnut, Lilac, disease-resistant Apples, Pears and a very hardy Peach. Sugar maple, red maple and white oak are also available. This year look for a greater selection of blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and asparagus that thrives in heavy clay.
Possible uses for the seedlings are home orchards, windbreaks, Christmas trees, ornamental, and wildlife habitat.
Sale proceeds help support scholarships for Green Mountain Conservation Camp, Conservation Field Day for all Addison County sixth graders, resource information workshops, and planting trees alongside streams.
To receive your order form detailing selection and cost call 802-388-6746 x3037 or e-mail [email protected].
Orders will be welcome throughout April but those received by April 10, 2018 will get priority. The District Tree Sale pickup will be held in Middlebury on the morning of April 28.
